I just bought a new iphone 4s from Verizon. Under cellular usage it is reading LIFETIME 25 days??? I've had the phone less than 48 hours so how can my total call time be reading 25 days. Did I recieve a used phone? I can't seem to get an answer from the Apple Store or Verizon. I had an iPhone 4 so when I got home I restored my phone on iTunes. Someone told me that is why it is saying lifetime 25 days, that doesn't make sense to me and they gave no explaination.
Thank you for your help.
You restored from an existing iPhone. That particular iPhone had 25 days of cellular usage over the course of its lifetime. That usage figure has now copied to your new phone.
So you are 100% sure I have a new phone? I sure hope so I really don't want to go back to Verizon : ) They said they would give me another phone but it's a hassell. Stedman thank you so much for your help and explanation. Yesterday someone told I just talked on the phone alot, duh, couldn't talk 25 days worth in 24 hours : ) lol
Yes. If you restore from the backup of a previous iPhone, it inherits the call timers along with everything else that was on the old one.
While it is impossible for me to determine with 100% certainty that your phone is new, I can say that the cellular usage does show the lifetime amount. My iPhone shows cellular usage of 3 days, after owning for approximately 1.5 years. From other posts on the forum, it appears this usage amount does transfer to a new unit. I haven't set up a second iPhone, so I don't have first hand experience.
I only had my other phone for nine months... Do you talk on your phone alot? I probably average 2 hours a day? Maybe a few more. I wish Apple would tell me that hours transfer. They have to know, but act clueles...
Wishing I had my old phone to look at the hours, but it's at the bottom of a lake : )
